  3. Change your thumbnail photo to old ones, this one's not looking attractive

  4. The final example was very good.
    "Oh, my knight's on a3, watching c2 and defended, I'm fine here."

  5. I'll disagree with the first one, as I play Bird's Opening. (g)

  6. 11:32 – I wouldn’t do Nh3 because of the teaching that Knights should develop towards the center. I’d castle and suffer the loss then Nf3, Ng5 and hope for the best…

  7. I agree with it but what if the opening requires to move your f-pawn like in the caro kann fantasy variation or in the vienna/kings gambit are these openings considered bad then even if you can get winning postions out of them

  8. Ok. I get it. King's gambit is only allowed when you play black and start 1 tempo behind.
    It's ok though, I enjoy the challenge 😀

  9. Moving the f pawn is p important in vienna

  10. Very great lesson with wonderful ideas and clever ideas😈😈😈👏👏thanks for sharing that

  11. For me these short videos are very good and helpful, but the downside is that i don't really understand them but i will keep on checking them…

  12. You are the best chess tutior ony youtube. There are many channels but I like your channel the most. Thank you very much for teaching.

  13. Much of chess principle can be summed up by the old expression, “look before you leap.”

  14. ur a beast at teaching bro , you give private online lessons ? i just started playing like a month ago and need me some coaching
